Great car, if you're kidless!!!

2002 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


We bought the car because we wanted a small SUV and didn't like what other car makers had to offer. We got the S premium package, which had many extras!!!! We added a few things to make it sportier, like fender flares and rear spoiler. Great car, but when you put infant and carseats in the back seat, it's a VERY tight squeeze, in both the front and back!!! Love the extras, like the heated side mirrors and auto dimming mirror, but what were they thinking with the cupholders? Awesome sound system and great in snow and mud, a plus in Minnesota!

Best Features

I love the heated seats, heated mirrors, and auto dimming rear view mirror. The 6 disc indash CD changer is awesome! It just enhances the stereo system. More storage than other SUV's that are comparable in size.

Worst Features

Cupholder placement and rear seat room. We love the vehicle, but may need to upgrade to a larger SUV to accommodate two young kids. I wish Subaru made a larger one! It's a great car, but just too small for a growing family.
